Go in and get a brochure guide. The windows alone are a treat- see where Robert E. Lee worshipped. A lovely old church

Even though there is some roof restoration going on, this wonderful historic church is open with excellent interpreters, not just the reenactors during the summer! (although Patrick Henry is quite the guy, I must admit!!) Lovely grounds, interesting gift shop and LOTS of places to eat within walking distance, not to mention Libby Hill Park, the view that named Richmond!

It was a raining fortress behind huge walls. It did not look inviting...and in a very busy part of the city. I wanted to see the wood and cemetery but I wouldn't suggest visiting it right now with it surrounded by scaffolding and such! We'll try again, next visit!

Attended this reenactment on 4 Jul. They depicted the delegates coming together prior to the Revolutionary War. They encourage audience participation. Great program for all age groups. At the closing, they read The Declaration of Independence. The reenactors are available afterward for questions and picture taking. Really made the 4th special for me. Advance tickets can be acquired from St... More

We enjoyed this so much. We were not sure what to expect, but are so glad we visited. This church sits at the highest point in the city, and is one of the oldest structures. See actors bring history to life as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry, and others. If you love this country and like history, you will... More

I'm usually not into reenactments, but St. John's made a believer out of me haha. It's interactive, believable and moving. I always feel like I'm in the middle of all the history oozing out of this place.

Beware this church is currently undergoing extensive renovations. Scaffolding everywhere - stained glass windows removed. It would be a lovely visit under other circumstances, but it's currently not worth the effort in my opinion.

When visiting Richmond we learned about this from some local friends. It is performed at 1 pm each Sunday. We are so glad we were able to attend. The actors were very good & the performance made you proud to be American.

What a wonderful, interactive way to learn more about the events that we've heard about since grade school! The actors do a fantastic job of explaining the context, and then you are part of the delegation, as Patrick Henry's resolution is debated and, ultimately, passed. It's a great way to really understand what happened and to enjoy the words of... More

Came for our son's school project to hear the reenactment of Patrick Henry's famous speech. The usher asked if we would like to move to the front and we were seated in the pewbox with some of the costumed actors. Truly in the thick of things- it almost felt as if we were back in 1775.
